UFC pay scale reminds me of the CFL

After reading a few fighter profiles and the last 3 or 4 years of UFC pay outs it reminds me of the Canadian football league salaries but the UFC has alot more viewers and payperview events.Alot of the Canadian football players have other jobs just like some UFC fighters.I would say the UFC ratings are closer to the NFL then the CFL so I dont get the low pay.I almost choked when Joe stevens spent his life savings $35000 to fight BJ and was left broke when he did not win.Chris Lytle still a fireman after 20 UFC fights I dont know how Dana and the Fretia brothers sleep at night I suppose a bed of a $100 would be a real big help.Also when the UFC started making huge profits why dont they increase salaries.Do the fighters pay for there own training this would make it worse also what about health insurance who pays that.Bottom line is how do the top athletes get payed like second rate competion.
